Jen Dryer

Jen is a native New Yorker who moved to DC in January 2009, after 14 years of living in NYC. She began her journey into yoga in 1996 to help combat the stress of life as a NYC public school teacher, and since then has made yoga an integral part of her world. She completed her 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga Teacher training at Sonic Yoga in NYC in 2006, under the amazing wisdom and guidance of Lauren Hanna and Jonathan Fields. She was trained in both Prana Flow yoga and Power yoga styles, reflecting her teachers' diverse backgrounds. The variety in her training has served her well, and made her practice and teaching style well rounded. Now as a mother of two sweet boys (Zack and Max), she is ever more thankful for yoga, which has proven invaluable both physically and mentally throughout her pregnancies, recoveries and in motherhood. Jen also teaches prenatal, postnatal, children's and family yoga classes. She completed the Every Kid's Yoga: Teaching Yoga to Children with Special Needs training in 2017 at Circle Yoga.

Jen's teaching style: Jen's classes embody creative flow and mindful movement, while also attending to anatomy, alignment and breath. She is attentive to providing alternatives and modifications to support her students and their myriad needs, providing students the opportunity to connect with their bodies and find joy in the poses and the transitions, all while keeping the class flowing and the students smiling (whenever possible!)
